HEALTH EDGE SERVICES: ADJUSTMENTS FOR ADVANCED PAIN RELIEF
If you are suffering from chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches and migraines, a whiplash injury or another injury or chronic pain condition, chiropractic care can help. Chiropractic adjustments are a drug-free, non-invasive pain management and injury rehabilitation treatment. Adjustments bring proper alignment back to your spine, support your body’s natural posture, and support the body’s healing process after an injury. At Health Edge Medical and Wellness, our chiropractor provides state-of-the-art adjustments for advanced pain relief – helping you return to living a full, active life.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE TARGETS THE CAUSE FOR BACK AND NECK PAIN
Chiropractic care is effective for managing chronic pain because adjustments target the underlying trigger for pain, rather than simply “masking” pain symptoms. Medication, for example, focuses only on the symptoms of pain. Drugs work by temporarily numbing the brains’ ability to perceive pain; once medication wears off, however, this pain will return. Our Health Edge chiropractic care is different. Spinal adjustments address both the symptoms and the cause for your pain, providing immediate relief and long-lasting pain management.
Many of our patients suffer from back pain and neck pain. This pain is typically caused by a spinal misalignment. An accident injury, such as a car accident or sports injury, may cause the spine to be knocked out of alignment. Natural wear and tear, along with poor posture, are also contributing factors for spinal misalignments. When the spine is out of alignment, a herniated disc or compressed disc can compress nearby nerves and muscles, triggering pain. Chiropractic adjustments relieve this compression by bringing proper alignment back to the spine, which in turn relieves pain.
Pain patients choose our Charleston chiropractor because of our whole body approach to pain management, injury rehabilitation and wellness care. Our chiropractic techniques are safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. There is no “popping” or “cracking” of the spine; instead, we use precise, targeted to adjustments to directly address the underlying spinal misalignment. Most importantly, our chiropractic services go beyond pain management and injury rehabilitation to support whole body health. We believe that good health is more than the “absence” of pain, but a holistic approach to wellness care. Through chiropractic care, we help empower our patients to better health.
When you first visit our Charleston chiropractor, Dr. Hunter will take a full medical history and conduct diagnostic tests. These tests are essential to determining the precise cause for your back pain, neck pain or other chronic pain problems. Once we have located the spinal subluxations triggering your pain, Dr. Hunter will create a custom treatment program.
While chiropractic adjustments form the foundation for our program, we also offer complementary therapies, including spinal decompression therapy, corrective exercises, lifestyle counseling, nutritional counseling, massage therapy, and spinal/postural screenings. We find that this integrated approach to care delivers the best results for our patients.
